All participants in the kids races will receive a ribbon. The first three male and female finishers in each category will receive a place ribbon.
Wiener Dog Race
Bring your wiener dog to add to the fun of the day and support the fight for breast cancer. This event is fun for all to watch and will be held after the run/walk and before the awards presentation.
It will be nothing too serious and for entertainment purposes. A small entry fee of $5 to enter your wiener dog will go directly to Impact the Cure. The overall “wiener” will get a small prize and every participant will receive a ribbon. The “track” will be from east to west through the Impact Sports and Fitness parking lot.
Children’s Face Painting
Look for the booth–children can get a little face art done free of charge!
Cancer Survivor Recognition Ceremony
Cancer survivors are recognized as a group prior to the run/walk.
